Constipation

How to treat Constipation

Constipation is a very common problem and it can affect adults, children and infants and most of the time can be treated at home.

Medication to treat constipation is called Laxatives

Types of  laxatives:

Bulk-forming laxatives; ( Fybogel )

They increase the bulk of your stools (faeces) by helping them retain fluid, encouraging your bowels to push the stools out

Osmotic laxatives; ( Lactulose )

These laxatives soften your stools and help make it easier to pass by increasing the amount of water in your bowels

Stimulant laxatives; ( Senokot )

Stimulant laxatives help increase the movement of your bowels by stimulating the nerves that control the muscles lining your digestive tract.

Stool softener laxatives ( Dulcoease )

Stool softeners increase the fluid content of hard, dry stools, making them easier to pass out the stool.

Fleet ( Cleen ) Ready To Use Enema ,

Fleet ( Cleen ) Ready To Use Enema

Fleet Ready To Use Enema is for the relief of occasional or periodic constipation. Constipation can generally occur if you have three or fewer bowel movements each week, and your stools are hard, dry, and difficult to pass. In this situation, Fleet Enema can provide help and relief.

How does Fleet Enema work?

Fleet Enema is a saline laxative. Saline laxatives work by drawing water into the colon which helps produce a bowel movement. This provides a soft stool mass and increased bowel action. A bowel movement should be stimulated in 1 to 5 minutes, without pain or spasm. Fleet Enema is also ideal for bowel cleansing before undergoing a rectal examination. Plus, it’s latex-free.

Fleet Enema is available in a ready-to-use, disposable squeeze bottle with a soft, pre-lubricated Comfort tip.

What would you use it for?

  • Relief of occasional constipation.
  • Where bowel cleansing is required, for an endoscopy, bowel surgery or an X-ray examination.
